Copywriting the Happy Birthday Song

A legacy abridged with hospital debt,

Gambles impulse for insight. 

Scratch offs reject their glitter

Dispersed at random: modes of thought: 

And quantum renderings make money whole. 

Culture mends its lowest post,

Dead actors sculpt the stage.

Strings linger down from the rafters,

Puppet masters 

Twiddle their fingers and implement 

Strategic pivots,

disguising a marinette’s hindsight,

In discovering predictable errors. 

Punchlines abbreviated with high-pitched inhales.

Mark spaces as 

Air. Nothing is empty. 

Laughter follows where the jokes lead.

Weapons of influence 

Detail exclamations. 

Wood rots, but the strings remain.
